Designed for electro-house music maker Deadmau5's cat, Professor Meowingtons pHD, the Meowingtons headphones hit the market this week in limited supply.
Electronics company Sol Republic's made only 10 but may produce more based on demand. The proceeds will go toward the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

But could humans use this gadget, too?
"You could, but they probably won't fit unless you have a really tiny head," Sol Republic CEO Seth Combs tells Mashable. "We believe if music sounds better, it feels better and that our headphones will help improve the lives of cats."
"We had to change the housing to accommodate the unique shape of cat ears and to reduce output for sensitivity," Combs says. "They also have a mic and remote, but I don't envision many cats using that functionality."
The debut of the Meowingtons headphones came with a spiffy infomercial-style ad (watch below) from the comedic video creators at Rooster.
"We wanted to create something that would be relevant to Deadmau5's audience but not alienate the general public," says Rooster's creative director Gavin McInnes.

The most acclaimed web cat is Nyan Cat, an 8-bit animated feline, who won Meme of the Year at the Webby Awards in May.
The Pop Tart-shaped viral sensation stormed onto the Internet in April 2011 when illustrator Chris Torres introduced Nyan Cat to the masses via YouTube.
"Nyan Cat has transformed into this viral entity that has surpassed not only everything I originally expected for my art but for memes in general," Torres recently told Mashable. "It’s gained its own amazing subculture with incredibly creative fans."
